May 30, 2010 |  5:56 pm

California Highway Patrol investigators are increasing their efforts to find a sniper who has been shattering car windows in the Inland Empire, apparently with a pellet gun.

No injuries have been reported as a result of the attacks.

Many of the shootings have been on the 10, 15 and 215 freeways. KTLA reported that 45 vehicles have been damaged in recent weeks, with a dozen motorists reporting incidents Friday.

Officers have asked anyone with information about the alleged sniper to contact the Inland highway patrol office at (909) 388-8000.
